Hello everyone. Today's tracks is going to be pretty short, mostly because there wasn't a lot of hockey news yesterday. This is probably because Zach Parise and Ryan Suter were the big story for so long and now there is no real story. There was one big story related to the Phoenix Coyotes but I do not feel like giving it any more publicity then it already got, mostly because I felt it wasn't well researched and the stories shouldn't be trusted. There was also a great Coyotes story though, Brett MacLean is apparently doing very well, he has started walking although he apparently has no memory of his "cardiac emergency." And finally we have a Yotes story that involves a plan that is probably not going to happen, but its interesting nonetheless.
The news stories we have are after the jump, we have a few stories from around the hockey world and of course the story of MacLean's recovery progress.
